Movie Summary

Peter Medak

Species II is the 1998 sequel to the popular sci-fi horror original, from director Peter Medak (The Changeling, Romeo is Bleeding) and featuring terrifying yet beautiful creature design by famed artist H.R. Giger (Alien). The film starts with the first manned mission to Mars, code named 'Excursion,' manned by Patrick Ross (Justin Lazard), Dennis Gamble (Mykelti Williamson) and Anne Sampas (Myriam Cyr) reaching its destination after 11 months in space. Patrick becomes the first person to walk on Mars, taking various soil samples. When back on board, some strange slime starts to pour out of the sample cannister... Back on Earth, the astronauts are treated like heroes, but while at a fund raising event Patrick has sex with two d'butant's (Nancy La Scala and Raquel Gardener) whose stomachs open up and human like baby alien creatures emerge. Patrick asks his Father Senator Judson Ross (James Cromwell) for help but is ignored as Judson doesn't want any bad publicity. Patrick continues to create alien offspring using various prostitutes, pole dancers and horny housewives. Meanwhile, General Carter Burgees (George Dzundza) calls in professional hit man Preston Lennox (Michael Madsen, returning from the original) and Dr. Laura Baker (Marg Helgenberger, also an original cast member) who has created Eve (Natasha Henstridge) from a frozen alien embryo who seems to have a telepathic link with Patrick. But to use Eve's vital ability to its maximum potential they must turn her almost completely alien...



Metacritic Score

    The New York Times Lawrence Van Gelder

    In the spring a monster's fancy lethally turns to thoughts of lust. This thought, reduced to a level contemptuous of taste and reasonable intelligence, underlies Species II.

    Los Angeles Times John Anderson

    The best advice to give anyone who wants to see Species II--other than "don't go!"--is "don't eat!"

    Variety Joe Leydon

    An unsavory and unsatisfying blend of dumb plotting, leering lasciviousness and full-bore gore, pic should warp-speed to video shelves.
